    So, first off, if this has been covered forgive me. I've been fighting iTunes crashes and restore's for the last 2 hours so I'm not really up to searching...

    My messages keep showing I have an unread message. Badge on the icon, and (1) in the messages. However, I DON'T HAVE any unread messages!! I've tried a full restore and it's come right back. I've tried deleting all the messages as well.

    I think it started when i tried to install MobiSec on my phone from Cydia. Not sayiing that's the cause, but that's when it happened. I have since removed MobiSec, BiteSMS, and restored twice, no solution.

    Is this a bug with the Beta maybe? I"m running iOS5GM...

    Yup - kill the message app, then hard reset. Good as new!

    Did you restore as new or from a backup? Sounds like something is corrupt in a backup.

    I also assume you've sent yourself messages over and over and tried to clear it out like that?
